5. Compliance with Laws
a. You agree to conduct yourself in full compliance with all applicable laws including, but not limited to, if you are a healthcare provider, federal, state and local Anti-Kickback statutes, Stark laws, and any other applicable fraud and abuse provisions. You will not intentionally conduct yourself in a manner which violates any applicable law or regulation. Furthermore, it is not a purpose of these Terms to induce referrals by healthcare providers. If you are a healthcare provider, you acknowledge there is no requirement, either express or implied, under these Terms, requiring you to refer any patients to INNOVASIS for products or services. Also, if you are a healthcare provider, no Compensation will be paid by INNOVASIS in return for patient referrals or in return for purchasing, leasing, or ordering of any products or services from INNOVASIS; you acknowledge that no Compensation is determined by, or takes into account the volume or value of any future referrals or business; and, that nothing in these Terms shall be construed as requiring or authorizing any payments to be billed to or through any of your patients, including but not limited to Medicare. You may refer patients to any entity providing such products or services, and you shall make referrals, if any, consistent with your professional medical judgment and your patient’s needs and wishes. It is INNOVASIS’s intent that the structure and operations of this relationship shall meet the requirements of the Stark laws and Anti-Kickback Statute including, without limitation, one of the safe harbors to the Anti-Kickback Statute (42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7b) as described under 42 CFR § 1001.952.
b. The contract created by these Terms shall terminate immediately on either party’s giving written notice to the other if such party determines that there is a substantial risk of being deemed in violation of any legal or regulatory requirement as interpreted by a governmental agency charged with enforcement; provided, however, that if such determination applies only to certain provisions of this contract, such determination shall not affect the remaining provisions of these Terms unless the failure to perform the affected provisions would defeat the essential purposes of these Terms.
c. If you are a healthcare provider, you and INNOVASIS will both adhere to the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals (which can be found online at www.advamed.org).
d. If you are a healthcare provider, you agree to comply with any and all disclosure obligations to affiliated hospitals as required by affiliated hospitals.

d. Invalidity. If any provision contained in these Terms shall be held to be illegal, invalid, unenforceable, or void in any respect, these Terms shall not be rendered null and void; and the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions contained in these Terms shall not be affected.
e. Mediation / Arbitration. The parties shall negotiate in good faith to resolve any controversy, dispute or disagreement arising out of or relating to these Terms. Any matter not resolved by negotiation shall be settled: (a) first, by the parties trying in good faith to settle the dispute by mediation under the Commercial Mediation Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) at a location in Utah, and (b) then, by binding arbitration administered by the AAA under its Commercial Arbitration Rules to be held in Salt Lake City, UT, before a single arbitrator. Nothing in this Section shall prevent INNOVASIS from seeking relief (equitable or otherwise) through a court of law for your violations of Section 4. If there is a dispute or disagreement which is non-arbitratable then the parties agree that any state or federal court in Utah shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any such dispute.
